Proverbs 29:2-4 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
    but when the wicked rule, the people groan.
A child who loves wisdom makes a parent glad,
    but to keep company with prostitutes is to squander one’s substance.
By justice a king gives stability to the land,
    but one who makes heavy exactions ruins it.
